Visit the Mountain of Fire - Montana de Fuego.
Some of the craters of the volcano Montaña de Fuego ('Mountain of Fire') are still active, and just centimeters from the surface temperature arrives to some 400ºC. If you pour water on a crater, it will vaporize in a fraction of a second, and if you put small branches there, they will start to burn immediately.

The last great volcanic out-break on Lanzarote was, in 1732, when large parts of the island were destroyed. In 1824 some smaller craters broke out again.
